iQOO doesn’t want to get left behind and will be launching its new device known as iQOO Z1x. The Z1x has been in the leaks for quite some time now. Though, from the start of the month, the Chinese company has been teasing different features of the phone. Like any other company in the market right now, iQOO is also focusing on 5G smartphones. The same is the case with the new Z1x, which will be featuring a 5G mid-range chipset: Snapdragon 765G.
Earlier we saw the TENAA certifications that mentioned a CPU with a clock speed of 2.4GHz will be powering the Z1x. Since iQOO already launched iQOO Z1 with MediaTek Dimensity chipset, it was expected that the Z1x will be Snapdragon-powered. Now, the company has finally confirmed that iQOO Z1x is going to be powered by the Snapdragon 765G. The smartphone will support dual-mode 5G (SA/NSA).
Talking about more specifications, the iQOO Z1x features 6.57-inch 1080×2408 resolution screen. A 120Hz refresh rate will be rocking to provide the buttery smooth experience. Since 5G and 120 Hz display are battery absorbers, the company has opted for a significantly bigger battery. The phone will be rocking a larger battery of 5000mAh. As Vivo is the parent company of iQOO, a faster charging solution is for sure. There will be 30W fast charging support.
Moving to the camera department, there is a 48MP main camera accompanied by two 2MP units. While, on the front side, a 16-megapixel is sitting in the small punch-hole notch.
A USB-C port and 3.5mm headphone jack will be present, you’re welcome gamers. While if the phone looks ditto to the previously launched iQOO Z1, then there is a difference. The LED flash has been moved to the right side of the cameras, which is the only prominent difference I could notice. Anyways, a question pops up in my mind: “Do we need an iQOO Z1x or Is It Just Another Phone For Flooding The Market?”
Why iQOO Z1x?
iQOO Z1? Okay. Now another phone with a similar design? Well, the iQOO Z1x is a slightly cheaper version of Z1. The Z1 features a higher 144Hz refresh rate and a better chipset. The iQOO Z1 is priced at $345, so let’s see at what price the Z1x is priced at. More information will be available once the phone goes official on July 9th. Hence, I will leave my question to iQOO, as they will be deciding the pricing of the phone.
